With history dating back to 1896, Knight Frank is a global estate agency, covering residential and commercial property consultancy, with more than 18,000 people in 60 markets from 523 offices worldwide.
“We have been impressed with Zalaris’ professional approach to providing us with the solution we were looking for on-time and on-budget.”, says Sally Chacatté, Partner, Group Head of Human Resources.
The project, which went live in 2019, was led from their global HQ in London and included the deployment of Foundation, Recruiting (Management, Marketing and Posting) and Learning into their global organisation.
Integrated employee records are sourced from SAP (for UK employees) and a global people database (for international employees). The solution offers Knight Frank employees the ability to apply for internal jobs as well as search for, register for, record and complete learning activities, both online and in the classroom.
Recruiting enables job requisitions to be managed by recruiters, with visibility to hiring managers of applicants and their progression through the recruiting pipeline. Jobs can be advertised through the Knight Frank corporate website as well as via third party job boards and agencies. SuccessFactors provides interview scheduling tools and collates feedback as well as producing standardised, but configurable offer letters. Successful UK candidates are automatically integrated to the SAP system to create new hires.
The SuccessFactors mobile app will enable visibility and approvals to managers within the organisation whilst on the move.
“I am delighted that Knight Frank have completed the first step of their SuccessFactors portfolio and are enjoying the benefits of moving to the cloud. We look forward to accompanying them further on their HCM Cloud journey.”, says UK Managing Director, Will Jackson.
